Lin stated that because a standard dosage of one milligram of adrenaline demonstrated to be effective in regaining a person's pulse after a cardiac arrest, doctors also questioned what type of impact a high dose of adrenaline may have. ‘When compared to individuals who received a typical dose of adrenaline, those that received a high dose had an greater potential for regaining their pulse after a cardiac arrest even,’ he said. ‘The long-term survival rate, however, did not boost.’ Dr. Lin said that those in the medical community need to discuss and research whether adrenaline should still be administered during cardiac arrests. He recommends that paramedics concentrate on early usage of defibrillators and effective CPR instead.The Kaiser Daily Wellness Policy Report is published for Kaisernetwork.org, a free of charge support of The Henry J.
